I received something of value from Feld Entertainment as part of their Insider Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
Last night Brian, the kids, and I attended the opening of Disney On Ice Treasure Trove in Milwaukee. The set up at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena (formerly known as the U.S. Cellular Arena) worked well. We never had issues with our view being blocked. We could see the changing light patterns on the ice and even make out many of the characters facial expressions.
I'm really glad we had the opportunity to go as it was a nice family outing. My husband went to a Disney On Ice show when he was younger, but at that time it was primarily Mickey Mouse and his crew. I attended some sort of performance on ice as a kid, but never got to see Disney On Ice. I always wanted to and I was not disappointed!
I found the entire show to be entertaining. The Queen of Hearts' Army of Cards were kind of creepy with their double-sided heads, but otherwise the costumes were fantastic. The skating skills were also impressive. My favorite to watch was Aladdin and Jasmine – they put on an amazing performance! There were a few stories and characters my children didn't know very well, such as Alice in Wonderland, so now we'll need to go back and watch those. I found myself frequently singing along since I was very familiar with every story in the show. Rissa and Xander kept getting out of their seats to dance and twirl like the ice skaters.
My daughter's favorite part was Princess Tiana. Though really she was excited at every new character that came out. My son really liked the unique animal costumes during the Lion King story. He really enjoyed pointing out every character he knew. Both of them thought the flying carpet was cool as well as Peter Pan and Tinker Bell flying over the ice.
There are several more show times in Milwaukee from February 6-8, so if you haven't gotten tickets yet there's still time to catch the show. It's fun for the whole family!
I wasn't sure how well Xander would do throughout the show, being two years old and all. He didn't want to sit still for very long, which we expected. He didn't try to leave or get too upset until near the end. Otherwise he was content to watch, clap, dance, and munch on popcorn throughout the show. Rissa has a much better attention span at the age of four, so she sat nicely for the majority of it. She also got up to dance several times and enjoyed snuggling up to Brian or I as she watched the antics on the ice.
